Set just outside our main building, this half-acre visitor park is the perfect place for planning your journey through our outdoor exhibits. Nature-based climbers complete with rope walks, climbing webs, and balance logs beckon the brave and curious. The climbing structure, custom created for the Museum, encourages you to take risks, test abilities, and maybe even discover new skills. Will you be able to maintain your balance on a rope web set at an angle? Save time for an extra wide hillside slide and a 500-square-foot sand play area with diggers and oversized trucks.

Gateway Park was funded by generous donors to our Climbing Higher campaign.
